The man who both Bryan and I have a crush on.

If you don’t recognize him, it’s Henry Rollins. Formerly of the punk band Black Flag, currently dabbles in just about everything media related. Saw him do 3 hours of spoken word in Boulder last night and per usual, he was fucking awesome. Hilariously funny, but also magnificent at seeing through the bullshit of the world. For example, he has now done 6 USO tours for the troops – some of which to the most dangerous places in the world – yet hates Bush. Proving that you can love your country, support the troops, but still loudly question your leaders.

Oh, and my new phrase that I plan to use all the time, that I picked up from Henry last night? “I was so mad, I wanted to eat my hair.” Love it.

End of the Puppies.

Bryan just called. Declan had a dental checkup this morning. First off, he did AWESOME. He let the dentist do all sorts of poking and prodding…. and his teeth look really good. WTG Dex! BUT. The dentist says he needs to get rid of his “lovie”- OH MY GOD. His lovie is actually a set of 14 blue stuffed puppies, whose ears he sucks whenever he is tired, upset or just needs some luff (to quote Luka Bloom). The dentist says that the sucking has moved his teeth about 6mm already… and that adult teeth follow the pattern of baby teeth… So the sucking is only going to continue to make it worse. Eek.

He got his first Puppy from Oma while still in the NICU… That original puppy was bigger than Declan was. As he grew, he developed a taste for their ears, and we stockpiled puppies to be able to wash and rotate them.

Sigh… How the hell are we going to get this kid to give them up???

About Us

Both “Greeble” and “Monkey” were my son’s nicknames while he was in my belly. So Greeblemonkey is where I document our lives. I am a graphic designer/web developer from Denver who loves music and movies and the two goofballs I live with. I take pottery classes and also actively pursue photography as a hobby. And when I say pursue, I mean chase my husband Bryan and my son Declan around the house with a camera.

Bryan and I grew up in Maryland but moved to Denver over 13 years ago. Denver is definitely home for us now. We’ve been married over a decade and Bryan is the funniest person I know. Except maybe Declan, who is quickly climbing the ranks.

Thanks for stopping by.
